            Komut Mai appeals from judgment and sentence following the denial of his motion to suppress and trial on the minutes of testimony.  Mai maintains the officer did not have reasonable suspicion to stop the vehicle in which he was a passenger.  OPINION HOLDS: Because we find the officer did not have a reasonable, articulable suspicion to stop the vehicle, we reverse the denial of Mai’s motion to suppress and remand for further proceedings.
